Ruthless Baltic warriors! [Medieval sword fights]

in #threespeaklast year (edited)

▶️ Watch on 3Speak

Even the mighty Vikings used to sail here. However, fierce local warriors were never defeated. 1000 years ago Apuolė had one of the most important castles in the Baltic region. What looks now like a ditch, used to be a deep river, connecting this area to the Baltic sea. The fight was during the annual Medieval art and war festival.

Swordsmanship or sword fighting refers to the skills of a swordsman, a person versed in the art of the sword. The term is modern, and as such was mainly used to refer to smallsword fencing, but by extension, it can also be applied to any martial art involving the use of a sword.

The formation of the English word "swordsman" is parallel to the Latin word gladiator, a term for the professional fighters who fought against each other and a variety of other foes for the entertainment of spectators in the Roman Empire. The word gladiator itself comes from the Latin word gladius, meaning "sword".

The video was filmed in Apuolė, Western #Lithuania
Editor: my lovely wife @Kamile.
Equipment used: Canon 700D.

Your wife is a marvelous editor, filming this reminded of the matchup in English kingdoms where the people use stick and mock up swords to exactly train really. I love the amazing theme song there. It's wonderful. Nice seeing those kids sparring with the wooden swords and the arrows and bow.

Yes, she improved a lot lately. :) 3 years ago her videos were much more primitive, but then she bought canon 700D and started attending video editing courses. :) Now she does it with Adobe Premiere PRO. :)

This is an old one.

Wow, well the old one isn't bad, I think it's a huge improvement when I look at the New one she's done really. Adobe Premiere PRO must be a beast the way I think it. Wow

Yes, it's s beast, but only when you know how to use it. :D

What a wonderful theme song.

Yes, it is. :D It takes you to middle ages instantly.
